Dearest one,

I am Elizabeth Johnson (22 years) the only surviving daughter of late Orah Johnson. I am in possession of some documents covering the deposit of  US$3.7 Million (Three million, Seven hundred thousand United States dollars) that my late father deposited in a Finance Firm here which I am the next of kin. I have verified the transaction with the Firm Company here and its authenticity is clear. This fund is of no criminal origin as it was realized from sales of the alluvial gold dust.

I am soliciting for your kind assistance in retrieving and claiming this fund from the Finance Company here as my father's business associate and have it transferred to your account in your country for investment. You will also serve as the guardian to this fund as Iâm not at all knowledgeable in the international business world. I will give you further details as soon as I hear from you and we will discuss terms and percentage subsequently but you must treat highly confidential.

Hoping to hearing from you soon. May God bless you as you extend your helping hand to the needy.
I wait for your response.


Miss Elizabeth Johnson.
